New Plus Size Glitter Maxi Dress
We couldn't resist returning to Puerto Rico again for our latest plus size dress shoot. This time we went on location in the center of the island at the fabulous Four Points by Sheraton Cagua Real Hotel, a tropical paradise known for its golf course. On the day we shot, guests packed the hotel for the Easter holiday. Ana Garcia, our jaw-dropping gorgeous model turned heads in the lobby posing in our new Glitter Maxi Dress.

"Everyone was in love with this dress," says blogger Marta Rivera who came on set for the one-day shoot. "People were coming up to me. They wanted to know where they can buy it. They were in awe!" The good news is that "Glitter Gone Wild" dress is now available at It just went up a few hours ago! And it's already flying out the door. Amazing jewelry designer Suzanne Ujaque styled the shoot inside the hotel. We're obsessed with the statement necklace she designed Ana wore with the Glitter Gone Wild dress. It's so dramatic and unique. Love the old Hollywood look of Ana's hair and make-up. So reminiscent of the glorious glamour of the Silver Screen!

Mother Nature didn't exactly cooperate on the day of the shoot showers on and off. But photographer Apolonia V worked the lens fantastically inside the hotel's stunning lobby, staircase and interesting nooks and crannies. The sun did come out long enough to pour natural light into the hotel when it came time to photograph our Rachel plus size cocktail dress in silver. I designed it first as a Little Black Dress and then couldn't resist the sterling silver as a new neutral for warmer weather - think Puerto Rico!

The hotel's oversize windows facing the fountain made a perfect background to photo our "Born Free" plus size formal dress. The metallic foil chiffon animal print shimmers in the sunlight - so does the heavily stoned one-shoulder strap!
